My Everchanging Garden

Gardening That Grows With Me

A Fall Harvest Menu

I was looking to create a menu to entertain some friends for dinner to celebrate the end of the harvest season and the wonderful produce from our vegetable garden. The end result was this Harvest Menu that incorporated not only items from our own garden (carrots, beets, onions, garlic and potatoes) but some local apples and pears as well. Plus with a little poetic license I figured including a little of the grape into our menu wouldn’t hurt either.
